Over at Adventures in Poor Taste, I wrote up a review on the recent remake of "The Evil Dead".
A warning beforehand: LOTS of spoilers, as I talk about specific plot points. But basically, I appreciated that it deviated from the original while keeping a few familiar elements; it's the way I like remakes to be done. However, it put more focus on action and gore than setting any sort of atmosphere or trying to be spooky (whereas the original struck a good balance).
Overall, though, it was pretty good.
